Exek Share Unseasonable Warmth Video
When Exek first came onto my radar in 2018, they were flirting with the artier side of post-punk, letting things get a little experimental within the confines of pop structures. On their forthcoming Advertise Here LP, the group seem to be pushing further away from any punk tendencies, and even stretching what it means to be a pop act. They’re fusing their art bits with little sprinkles of drum, bass and maybe even French pop flare; the vocals are sedate, almost static as they add tiny little melodic flourishes to the tune, particularly when the female voice floats in there. Definitely nice to see more folks expanding their sound beyond my expectations; look for the new LP via Castle Face Records on February 4th.
